Nicaragua's VP Mocks Costa Rica's Expectations Of International Court Decision

Nicaragua's Vice-President, Jaime Morales, joked earlier today that Costa Rica's wait on the decision of the International Court of Justice in The Hague (ICJ) on the precautionary measures requested against Nicaragua, was "like if it were a war of the worlds".

Morales said on Nicaragua's local television channel 12, Nicaragua is awaiting the decision "with patience and certainty that the decision, which will be dictated by the ICJ in the early hours of Tuesday morning (Central America time) will be in their favour given all the historical, legal and geographical reasons.

In contract, Costa Rica is preparing for a verdict as "if it were a Star Wars", dressed in white as if "they were going to a first communion", scoffed Morales.

"They are mobilizing troops, protecting their embassy (in Managua) like if a war was going to break out, while in Nicaragua the people are quiet", said Morales.

The vice-president said that president Daniel Ortega has acted with "great consideration" in the conflict.

Morales referred to Costa Rica's Public Security minister, Josť Maria Tijerino and Foreign Relations minister, Rene castro, as "ministers of War and international turmoil".

The ICJ will be handing down its ruling on where to accept or reject the measures called for by Costa Rica against Nicaragua, which is being accused of invading Costa Rica and causing environmental damage, both of which the Nicaraguan government strongly denies.
